Banner Batteries, one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of batteries and battery accessories are represented in Ireland by the Europower Battery Centre.
Banner recently picked up the Supplier of the Year Award from CAT (Car and Accessory Trader) Magazine in the UK.
Some 16,000 CAT magazine readers provided their personal ratings and Banner scored highly due to the first rate quality of its consulting, products, service and aftersales performance, which extends to used battery collection and recycling in a closed product cycle.
In addition, a professional training programme for all sales partners and a battery accessory range trimmed exactly to the automotive sector (chargers, boosters, testing devices and interesting, inexpensive battery service articles) were seen as equally outstanding.
This result represents further evidence of the fact that in the B2B area, the Banner brand is highly rated. Emphasising Banner’s high ranking, the brand’s Power Bull P72 09 battery was recently awarded “Test Winner” in the latest comparative battery test organised by Bild magazine in Germany, in conjunction with Vergleich.org.
The Banner Power Bull P72 09 received a top “Very Good ” rating. The judges remarked on the battery’s straight forward installation, said it was “convincing” in all regards and was a worthy “Test Winner”.
In other news Banner’s EFB battery has been chosen as Original Equipment BMW on certain models.
The news comes on the back of the successful launch of Banner’s EFB (Enhanced Flooded Battery) in Volkwagen’s Blue Motion vehicles.
BMW has followed Volkswagen’s lead in selected models fitted with Efficient Dynamics (1, 2 and Mini models).
Banner says its EFB batteries are particularly advantageous for any mass production models. This battery technology is employed for micro-hybrid vehicles, which reduce their fuel consumption and hence their CO2 emissions by means of a start/stop function and braking energy recuperation. The efficiency and production quality of Banner’s EFB batteries won over BMW with the result that the group selected the 70ah and 80ah versions fof delivery.
